There are several licensed Psychologists, Social Workers and a Counselling intern at Champlain St-Lambert who are here to assist students in identifying and resolving any difficulties which could interfere in the attainment of their goals within the areas of personal and career development. This is done through understanding, identifying, exploring, and finding different alternatives to the issue(s).
Students often need assistance in dealing with emotional or interpersonal issues that may be undermining their ability to achieve personal, academic, and/or career goals.
The mental health team is here to listen and explore these issues with students in a supportive, non-judgmental way. They collaborate with students to clarify the concern(s) and to help students express their feelings. They assist them in viewing the issue from different perspectives, to explore and identify goals for change, and to determine an appropriate plan of action. The plan of action may include counselling/psychotherapy within the College and/or referral to an outside community resource.
Some of the issues that students bring forth include: depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, transition/developmental difficulties, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, sexuality and gender, diversity, self-esteem, time management, exam/class anxiety, procrastination, study skills, and/or motivation.
